Boundary Disputes Solicitors in Harpenden

Boundary Disputes Solicitors in Harpenden

There are different types of boundary disputes including those between commercial and agricultural neighbours but the most common is between neighbours in residential properties. It is not surprising that the number of boundary disputes continues to increase as more and more houses are built.

What can you do if you are disputing a boundary?

There are a wide range of boundary disputes that can arise from the simple matters of which way around a fence should face and overhanging foliage to the more complicated matters such as the location of a boundary position.

Land Registry

There is a general misconception that disputes as to the location of a boundary can easily be resolved by looking at Land Registry plans. In fact, Land Registry plans only give a general position of the land and not an accurate one. Therefore there is a possibility that land that appears to be yours on the Land Registry plan could actually belong to your neighbour and vice versa. This is a very specialist area of law and litigation can be very expensive. For this reason, you will require a solicitor with experience in this area who can advise you on the merits of your case and assist you in bringing about a cost-effective resolution to your problem; this is the experience that we at Neves, Harpenden possess.
